Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko and Nominated MP Maina Kamanda were involved in a verbal fight after Sonko posted photos of himself distributing relief food in Turkana.
Mzee umezeeka vibaya- Sonko and Kamanda in ugly fight
Sonko tells off Kamanda
Kamanda through a Facebook post, stated that the governor had opted to pull a PR stunt with the gesture instead of serving the residents of Nairobi who had pending problems.
“Dear governor, after going to Turkana with your complete photograph team, please wake up and serve Nairobians,” remarked Kamanda.
He reiterated that the city required his attention first before deciding to be involved elsewhere.
“Streets are still dirty, hawkers being harassed, drainage pathetic and workers being fired left right like garbage.
Nairobi also needs service,” remarked the Nominated MP.
Governor Sonko however did not take the matter lightly and pointed out that Kamanda should learn to respect others.
“Mzee unazeeka vibaya. (Old man, you are growing old in a bad way). Respect others, respect your age the same way we respect you,” stated Sonko.
Sonko disregard claims he was doing Governor Nanok's job
The Nairobi county boss in his defense noted that he went to Turkana and West Pokot to help the people facing the hunger crisis and not for publicity purposes.
“I went to Turkana and West pokot for 3 days knowing Nairobians need services I did not go there to stay forever or perform the duties of their Governor HE Nanok, I did not go for PR as you allege.
“I was recently crowned the good deeds Ambassador in Kenya by the Global good deeds organisation based in Israel. I think this explains why I went there to stand with our brothers and sisters who are facing drought,” expressed Governor Sonko.
The controversial governor further noted that the sentiments of the veteran politician would not make him stop helping the needy.
